A bill that would prohibit the sale of low-efficiency plumbing fixtures in Colorado is on its way to the governor’s desk.
The bill would ban the sale of faucets, shower heads and toilets that are not “WaterSense” certified by the federal government. The ban would take effect in 2016.
The bill had previously passed the Senate and it received similar debate in the House last week, with Democrats arguing that the changes could conserve billions of gallons of water.
But Republicans said the bill is another example of government telling people what to do.
Gov. John Hickenlooper has not given any indication as to whether he intends to sign the bill.
